Quaker motifs

I took two projects to Oregon. I did finish the second heart from Moonstruck friends, but the photo I have just taken is really dark and blurry. So I'll share that later. The other project I took was Quaker Pin Cushions by Milady's Needle. I'm stitching all six of these on a piece of Belfast called 'Golden Harvest' - although I'm not sure who dyed it! I'm stitching the motifs in the recommended Belle Soie (so yummy to work with). I don't know how I'll finish them - I certainly won't be buying four wooden pin cushion bases! But I'll finish each on separately.

I missed the TUSAL at the start of the week. I took this shot on my dining room table - guess what other craft I've been indulging in since I got home!!!

I'm also still knitting my green cardigan. I'm finally doing the shaping at the top of the second sleeve. After that it's just the collar to go!

Happy stitching everyone.

Very nice project, and gorgeous colours. I hope you had a great time in Oregon.

The Quaker is lovely, congratulations. They would look good as pin keeps or biscournu's

I like the colors you used! I agree, they would make nice biscornus but I'm sure they'll be lovely whatever you decide.
